Ranchers are being ordered to euthanize harvest ready cattle, while at the same time, meat is being shipped in to the US. Milk is being poured out by the truck load. And then there’s this:

I hate to say it, but I want to explore the idea that this was done because of insurance. The country is shut down, they cant get the product to market, and they need cash, I of course have no proof, but these numbers are huge this isnt your mom and pop operation (like me) this is a massive scale operation where profits are measured in a few thousand birds.

That is absolutely something to consider. Maybe even the simplest explanation as far as Occam's Razor is concerned

Who is Occam and what does his razor have to do with it?? And what about Schroedinger and his cat?

DarkestMatt 15 points ago

It’s a method people use to make their argument seem correct. First they declare, without proof, that one explanation is the simplest, they cite ‘the simplest solution is most likely to be correct’, then say ‘see i am correct’. Shitty method, low energy.

Simplest explanation isn't low energy, it's energy efficient!

Fault the idiots misusing it, not the principle itself. Humans, being part of nature, typically work in their own self interest and will follow the path of least resistance in that direction. Hence, the most simple solution that satisfies the logic of a situation is likely the be the correct one.

Is the absolutely butt-fuck insane always a possibility? Certainly. Is it the most probable? Not often.

Given the escalating tensions with China and the large Chinese-owned stake in these food production companies, I wouldn't be surprised if it was an act of foreign sabotage. But, I wouldn't rule out insurance fraud either given the economic situation. Either solution fits the principle as there is a simple explanation and motivation for both cases.

Occams razor shaved Schrodinger's cat. It also didn't shave the cat, depending on what requires fewer assumptions.

I have to say time and again Occam's Razor does not apply to human affairs, only natural phenomenon.

Humans can veer towards complexity in interaction and motivation, thus negating the utility of Occam's Razor.

The business aspect of the coronavirus shutdowns is something I will be very interested to see.

No one will be able to nail down management as the problem because they can use coronavirus as plausible deniability for doing things they wouldn't be able to do in a good economy. I believe corporations will take full advantage of this to change their operations. The whole economy is in upheaval, and now is their chance to refocus or redirect their business.

China was spreading this since last fall with the expectation to cause panic this spring. They no doubt have all sorts of fun things planned out and did long before we locked ourselves up.

Like buying up all of the med supplies and shipping them back to China beforehand. Yep.

Especially considering these 3 farms are just a drop in the bucket. There are something like 9 billion chickens being raised in the US, and while I don’t know how many are raised for meat and how many are raised for other reasons, ~1million chickens are easily replaceable in our supply chain, and aren’t enough to encourage foreign involvement

Bingo! You're absolutely right.

It sounds like 'Greek Lightening' to me--businessmen having a sudden, 'accidental' fire so that the insurance company has to reimburse them for their loss. It's common when restaurants fail in Chicago.

The problem is that this move is soooooo old that it's the very first thing the insurance company thinks of. Inevitably, the insurance inspector finds the source of the excellerant and the company refuses to pay. Insurance companies are very skilled at this, having had lots of practice in the matter.

Recently, they started butchering hogs at a deep financial loss. Chickens and beef are next. Having seen the results, the businesses that just had these fires all had the same brilliant idea: insurance!

If the Chinese think this is some kind of brilliant idea, they're sadly mistaken. You've got to wake up awfully early in the morning to get something past an insurance inspector.

those chicken farms are basically owned by the meat packers

they sign a contract t buy X chickens and then dictate how they will be fed, kept, managed etc

the persons that actually own the farms basically become employees

it would interesting to see who these people have contracts with

Few multinational companies own pur supply. Conservative Treehouse did a great write up about it. It focused on how they control the supply, benefit from subsidies and manipulate the demand by shortages (controlled pricing). I believe only a few control it and many are foreign owned.

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Sometimes the simplest explanation is the best.

Forgive me: I don't mean to imply you are dumb. I may very well be the one who's wrong. It's just that, while your conjecture may be true, it's not the only possibility, and we should remain open to all possibilities. I am tired of our propensity to jump to conclusions based on the latest wave of hysteria. Let's try to reserve judgement until all the facts are in before running off, half-cocked. We are already in a position requiring cool heads in order to prevail.

I understand your point of view. I did not intent to insult you either. What you said makes sense but I think about this situation. I asked my parents if they ever experienced anything like what we are going through. They have not and neither have I. We learned of China's secret war against the US. Communism has a long history of behavior we can learn from. They have plagued our schools, institutions, key industries, state, local and Fed governments. It is no longer a secret and we have seen Soros, Muslim Brotherhood, Qatar and many billionaires do all they can to destroy US within. Identity politics, mass migration to cultural Marxism. They want to destroy every aspect of who we are.

That said, we have been overwhelmed with misinformation. From it not being bad to it being horrible and a new normal. We have meat processing plants all randomly being infected with Coronavirus. Odd that it is happening within those businesses in various parts of the country. We know multi national companies control pricing on food and China has its hand in the game. The Denver meat processing plant had a press conference. It was staged like communist propoganda. Workers in masks in lined positions, hands behind back, each with a side stance... just like China and USSR to Nazi Germany.

The media since March has had its focus on the meat industry. Sure enough we have Covid-19 outbreaks, union bullshit, fires and purposely planned shortages by large grocery store chains.

Rockefeller sold all its oil positions to invested in Healthcare early in the year. Fauci was named by George Bush Sr as his hero. Gates promoting cryptocurrency and mass vaccination for a virus we seem to not know anything about. Oh and the intel community comes out and says, "this was not a man-made virus." Just like they claimed Russia hacked DNC. Our country was being sold out and Trump has come into play. They are fighting and not hiding their intentions.

The truth is simple. We will not get the truth anytime soon. However, any sequence of events attacking critical lines in our country during a questionable pandemic - is most likely done intentionally by globalist. Nestle, China, Google, CDC, WHO ..they do not care about us. They only care about power.

Insurance claims — that was my first thought. Second thought was: which food manufacturers and processing plants do these poultry farmers supply?

There’s is merit to this. In the JIT supply chain model, any breakdown can cause some serious consequences. We compressed down our meat packing industry to a few major centers. With these being closed down or in restricted ops due to the CCP virus means they can’t handle incoming supply. Farmers just can’t keep animals on the farm..they have X capacity and when that happens it means they have to destroy stock if they can’t ship. We really need to start enabling farm to table sales, using the smaller family owned meat processing.

This theory makes no sense. The same time these fires happened is the same time people are panic buying and grocery stores are being depleted. There is nothing halting their means of supply and demand is up. If anything they should be able to increase profits during the lockdown.

There is nothing halting supply.

Not true, supply chain disruptions are happening now. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/26/business/meat-processing-plants-coronavirus/index.html

they should be able to increase profits

So price gouging, Illegal

Our economy and supply chains are on a razors edge of efficiency and profits and major disruptions like the shutdowns will have a huge effect. This theory makes plenty of sense. It's the best way for farmers to recoup their losses on a product that they are unable to offload.

There’s only been a few meat processing plants that have shut down nation wide so your point is moot. Ali’s, Don’t you think it’s weird that 0 outbreaks have happened with Walmart workers or target workers where workers see thousands of people, but meat processing workers have had outbreaks? Something fucky is going on.

As far as your price gouging comment goes, I’m not saying that they should raise the prices. I’m saying that the demand is very high and I’m sure that they do not have a lack of orders.

These are farmers... Some might committ a felony and do somthing they know is wrong but not many.. Also Insurance investigations are rigourouse and often more extensive than police investigations.
